A San Diego-based jeweler is crying foul over a lawsuit filed Monday by Drew Brees, claiming the Saints quarterback should be pointing the finger at himself for shelling out millions on jewelry over the years.
Brees, 39, claims Vahid Moradi of Southern California’s CJ Charles jewelry shop duped him out of millions, after discovering his collection of earrings, rings and watches is worth far less than what he originally paid, according to TMZ. Brees reportedly is seeking $9 million in damages.
But following a recent independent appraisal, Moradi’s lawyer, Eric M. George, said Brees’ aggressive spending is not his client’s problem.
“Years later, claiming to suffer ‘cash flow problems,’ he tried to bully my client into undoing the transactions,” George said.
“The biggest thing I enjoy is being around bigger guys, like last year with Matt Holliday or with A-Rod,’’ Judge said. “Those are bigger guys and I can relate to them as a hitter. If you give me a scouting report and the pitcher is 50 percent this or 40 percent this, 10 percent this. That scouting report may work for a [Ronald] Torreyes or [Clint] Frazier or somebody, but it’s not going to work for me. They are not going to pitch Torreyes like they pitch to Matt Holliday. So having another guy like Stanton, we have a chance if he’s hitting in front of me or I’m hitting in front of him, we get to see how we are going to get pitched.
Larry Nance Jr. did a decent job switching onto Indy guards, though Oladipo drilled a couple of stone-cold jumpers in his face. If Nance can hang — and he is hit or miss on switches — the Cavs might as well just start him over Green. He is a better defender and rebounder, and the Cavs can use him as a screener to unlock LeBron’s spread pick-and-roll game:
But this is surrender masquerading as aggression. The Cavs have no faith in Love, no matter what strategy they use, so they’re loading up behind him. When Love hung back in semi-garbage time, Oladipo zoomed right around him:
Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said Monday the team will go to Laramie, Wyo., next week to get a closer look at Allen, whose Pro Day they attended last Friday.
The Jets have had private workouts already with UCLA’s Josh Rosen and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield. Maccagnan said they have nothing scheduled with USC’s Sam Darnold, a possible sign they believe he will be taken No. 1 overall by the Browns.
“With Sam, we had actually gotten quite a bit of exposure on him, so we feel pretty good about him,” Maccagnan said.
